Kelly Primary - Guidance Counselor 
Jordan Manos M.Ed., LP 
Kelly Primary Guidance
It is truly an honor to be a part of the support staff at Kelly Primary!  As the guidance counselor, I not only oversee the academics and student achievements, but also support the classroom instructors with any assistance they may request or need.As the liaison for our local and government agencies, partnering school districts and legal entities involved with our families, I provide all necessary records, data and reports upon request. 
Additionally, I provide:
  • individual counseling services
  • small group sessions
  • conflict resolution strategies
  • home visits when deemed necessary.
Working with our students, families and community is beyond enjoyable!  I make it my priority to get to know our students and families that we service and will provide encouragement, along with resources, supports or suggestions on an as needed basis.  Our guidance curriculum implements social and emotional learning and institutes career readiness awareness. Positivity and productivity are promoted by Principal McClellan, the support staff and classroom instructors. 
I am available for the families that I service 24/7 by text or calling at 412-979-9423.
